How to make your life easier at Bookmyshow 2016
Alyssa’s new book, The Last Temptation of Christ: The Unbelievable True Story of How Jesus Became God, has been nominated for a bestseller award by the Bookmyshop awards.
The title, a modern take on the Old Testament story of how Jesus was saved by God, was selected by The New York Times for the Best New Book of 2016 award.
“Alyssa is one of the most compelling writers to come out of the New Testament in decades, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be nominated for this prestigious award,” said Michael Aronson, Bookmysource publisher and CEO.
“We look forward to reading her next book.”
The winning book will be published by Crown Publishing on August 1.
The award ceremony, held on Wednesday, was hosted by New York-based publisher Penguin Random House.
The event was hosted at The Manhattan Hotel and Casino, the same hotel where Oprah Winfrey won her award in 2008.
Bookmyssource CEO Michael Arsonson, who also chairs the Bookstars award committee, said he is excited to see the book win.
“This is an extraordinary honor for a New Testament author.
She is a true visionary, a true prophet, a woman of immense talent and a writer of amazing power.
And this book has just the right mix of story and wit to make her a star in the world,” he said.
The New Testament is the Bible of the Bible, which is a collection of books written between the first century and the first millennium CE.
It includes the Bible that was the first to be translated into English and is used by many denominations, including Christians, Jews and Muslims.
“Our award-winning selection is the culmination of a remarkable journey from a young, aspiring novelist to an accomplished writer of biblical legend,” said Joseph A. Schaeffer, the publisher and editor of The Bookstars.
The Bookmyshot is an award for books that are considered the best of the year in a category.
It was founded in 2000 by the American Academy of Religion and is part of the American Book Awards, which also honors the work of bestselling authors, including authors of best-selling books.
“It is an honor to be recognized as one of our members and to win an award like this one,” said Bookmyshack chairman and publisher Joseph Aronson.
“As an evangelical Christian, I was drawn to the book by its message of grace and redemption, which it shares with so many other biblical stories.
I’m honored to be selected for the prestigious Bookmyshoot.”
The award committee announced its finalists on Monday.
The nominees include a new book by American author and activist Ann Coulter.
“I am very proud of Ann Coulter’s novel, The Tragedy of Ann,” Aronson said.
“Its story of grace, redemption, and a new beginning are resonating in the heart and mind of a generation of Christians.
We are grateful to have Ann on the Bookshop team and look forward in the coming years to her writing, producing, and publishing other compelling works of fiction.”
